Mental Health—Specifications for Neuropsychological Evaluation

The FAA often requests a neuropsychological evaluation in cases involving head injuries, substance abuse, strokes, or other situations in which there is evidence of psychiatric or psychological pathology.  The testing should be conducted by a qualified psychologist who is specifically trained to perform cognitive testing, and preferably holding state licensing or certification with a Ph. D. or Psy. D. in Clinical Psychology. You can locate a qualified provider here.
